The VVGS Ark Shipping Experience - The Ultimate Protection


Do you have Shipping Anxiety?

Don't want to ship your favorite/best POP! to THE VVGS to get graded because you are scared that the post office or other carrier will damage or destroy it?  It has happened to us all (or will at some time).

THE VVGS has experienced this as well - and we set out to create a way that you can have the peace of mind that you are using the best possible method to ship your valued POPs.

Our solution is THE VVGS Ark Shipping Experience.  And the only way you can get one of this is to two of your POPs graded.


What is THE VVGS Ark Shipping Experience and how does this work?

THE VVGS Ark Shipping Experience includes hard-sided case with unique foam inserts that cradle your two favorite POPs in luxury.  We protect your POPs both on the trip to us (ungraded) and then on the trip back to you (graded).

When you purchase the Ark Shipping Experience, you get these extras, all included in a single price:

  • Ground shipping via UPS - three ways:  We ship you our VVGS hard-sided, protective case (empty).  You then put your two POPs in the case (obviously ungraded) and ship to us using the included pre-paid UPS shipping form.  We then grade and ark your POPs, and send them back (graded) to you.
  • Additional insurance (a total of $500.00 for two POPs).
  • Expedited Service (a total value of $40 for two POPs).  When we receive your shipment, you go to the front of the line for grading and arking.
  • You get to then keep the durable, hard-sided, weatherproof, foam-lined, VVGS shipping case (hopefully to send more POPs in to be graded).
  • We also personalize your VVGS case by attaching a VVGS identity tag showing the serial number of your case!

As you can see in the picture on the right, we provide two spaces in the Ark. This is how you send your POPs to us.  The case is made to send two POPs at a time.

  • We encourage you to send your POPs without any protectors, as we have found that sliding POPs in and out of these protectors can actually scratch the POP box, and even damage signatures that may be on the POP.  Both of these situations will negatively affect the grade of your POP.
  • There won't be room in the case for us to return protectors, and paying for protectors to be sent back to you just doesn't make and economical sense, because shipping costs more that a new protector.  Anyway, you are going to get the best protection available in our Ark!

Using our unique modular foam spacers, we can configure the Ark to protect ungraded or graded POPs.  See if any other case out there can do that.  It's pretty cool. 


Sounds pretty good, but what does all this cost?

Pricing for the Ark Shipping Experience

  • The first time you use the Ark Shipping Experience the cost is $200 for two POPs.  That includes the shipping case, grading and arking of two POPs, Expedited Service, $500 of  insurance, and all shipping charges - both to and from THE VVGS.  That is actually a value of $250.00.  And you keep the case!

  • You save even more every when you send us two more POPs, because the cost for repeat service, again for two POPs, is only $150.00.  This includes everything except the actual case (cause you already own that).

Obviously it makes a great deal of sense to get additional POPs graded.
